4D Body HIFU
4D Body HIFU is the use of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound to permanently destroy fat cells without harming the surface of the skin whilst combining a skin tightening element to the treatment, unlike no other procedure.
During a treatment, the high-intensity focussed ultrasound targets fat cells, where heat passes through the skin. These cells beneath the surface are permanently destroyed.
4D Body HIFU’s targeted energy passes over the surface of the skin and stimulates the cells used for collagen production and tissue rejuvination. Your skin layers react to this treatment by ‘repairing’ themselves thus lifting and tightening the area treated.
On average, clients lose up to an inch in the waist circumference (for some, this can mean down one dress size). Some clients have been known to lose more, while others achieved less.
4D Body HIFU destroys fat cells, reduces the appearance of cellulite, firms and tightens, whilst smoothing the texture of the skin in one treatment.
4D Body HIFU increases skin elasticity. As fat loss occurs, skin tightens with it.
4D Body HIFU is a non surgical treatment.
During a 4D HIFU Body treatment, high-intensity ultrasound energy is focused on the targeted fat. The energy passes through the skin and the targeted fat beneath the surface is permanently destroyed.
Over the next few weeks & months, the body naturally removes the destroyed fat which is drained to the liver via your natural lymphatic channels and circulation, leaving you more contoured with tighter skin in the area treated.
